Fifteen-year-old, Moira Byrne, is the daughter of the most powerful witch, Morgan Rowlands. Moira is on a journey of conquering evil and her own fears as family secrets are unleashed.

The author initially captivates the reader creating a plot of deep balance and multidimensional characters. It is a great series for young adults. This the fifteenth book of the "Sweep" series.

Library Journal
Gr 7 Up-Moira Byrne, the 15-year-old daughter of the powerful witch Morgan of Belwicket, is faced with devastating family secrets, horrible forces, blossoming love, and possible betrayal in the 15th book of the series. Learning of her heritage, Moira gains insight and strength to conquer her fears, defeat evil, and face the future. This coming-of-age story succeeds because of balance. No one element overshadows another. The characters are well drawn and readers will empathize and agonize with Moira and Morgan's experiences and relationships with each other and the other figures in the book. The sturdy plot moves toward a satisfactory and sigh-of-relief conclusion. The mood and tension are skillfully sustained throughout, and the integration of factual information enhances the character development. The conversational tone of the writing makes this story highly readable and engaging. A good choice for fans of the series as well as those new to it.-Molly S.
